Haiku 39

steam rising
off hot metal -
a dog lifts his leg

    Oh yeah... This reads more like a senryu than a haiku, but there's a fine line between. NIce work. Jack

    Thanks Russell... what amazes me most is how dogs can literally hold it in and SPREAD out the pee in several locations... sounds too painful for me!

    Timothy, lol, no matter what I'm taking a picture and using it as my avatar. I love pointing out at my surroundings when a dog or cat are squatting. and doing their business. Okay, and about that steam, I wouldn't want to be near the hydrant when the steam is rising in the air................ LOVE *SKAT

    LOL! That does sound rather toxic now that I think about it. My little black dog once did this and I was like, "Wow! Try to be as stereotypical as possible. Dog, pee, fire hydrant"... thanks for stopping by SKAT!
